Creating 3D model Autocad 2013 using .dxf

Hello!

Could anyone help me to create a 3D model using a .dxf file?

.dxf file contains 3D contour lines.

when importing it to Autocad 3D 2013 is shown as a colum instead of a 3D model.

Any suggestion?

thank you very much!!

.dxf file is quite big (550MB)... and can't upload it to the post.

tried .dwg which is a bit smaller (96MB). still not working...

would be ok for you to send it via dropbox?

thanks!

Hi,

 

 if you have just contours then use command _LOFT (>>>details<<<) to get a 3D-object.

I guess it looks like a column, because your contours are in Lat/Long, whereas your heights are in meters.

You should convert your drawing into an UTM system, by means of a draw query, sir.
